* Another example from the Vietnam war, American prisoner Jeremiah Denton was forced by his captors to participate in a televised propaganda interview describing how well he was treated. As the interview went on, he would feign being blinded by the production lights and blink "T-O-R-T-U-R-E" in Morse Code repeatedly. This confirmed for the first time to U.S. Naval Intelligence that American POWs were in fact being tortured
